All the leaks that we’ve seen on the future iPhone 8 (or iPhone X, as some sources call it) have been quite baffling so far. While the upcoming anniversary smartphone does look impressive indeed, some details we knew about it simply didn’t make any sense. As far as all the leaked images show, the new phone’s design is supposed to have almost no bezel, and its front camera will allegedly be somewhere under the phone’s screen. This is in tune with the under-the-screen fingerprint scanning technology that we also expected of the Samsung Galaxy S8, but we never got it.
However, some of these ideas just didn’t make sense, and many accused the leaks of being inaccurate and showing an impossible design. And of course, rumors are always subject to questioning. But new information on this subject shed some light on the issue, and we think we finally understand what the iPhone 8 is going to be all about. The lack of bezel in the phone’s design is still very much in the cards for the anniversary device, but the front camera won’t be under the screen after all.
And the under-screen camera is exactly what we were all questioning. The technology just didn’t seem to make sense, but now that we know that it won’t be like that after all, we finally understand. While the inbuilt fingerprint scanner made a lot more sense to come under the phone’s display, especially when we know that the special fiber technology that will make it happen is almost ready for manufacturers to use, the under-screen camera just seemed too made up.
We’re glad to see that these new leaks are much more plausible, and make more sense. As for the iPhone 8, rumors can’t do it justice. We’ll just have to wait for the official release.
